No Domestic Goddess Here.

Alright, it's a little 'honesty time'.  I don't want to do anymore housework.  I don't want to wash the dishes, I would rather lament the fact that I don't have a dishwasher.  I don't want to vacuum the rug because the crumbs are making the shape of a funny face.  If I have to fold one more load of laundry, I will force the entire family to go naked for a week and will be committed as a result.  *sigh*

I read blogs and these awesome women are so collected and together.  I feel envious that they can run their families, have their houses completely clean and decorated tastefully, cook awesome meals that are about to be submitted to a magazine to celebrate their deliciousness, and can blog about it at the same time.  I would like to believe that the pictures they're posting don't tell the whole story and that just off to the left of that picture is a messy child dumping glow-in-the-dark sand all over the floor.  But I'm sure they aren't.

I'm no domestic goddess.  I would like to tell you that my house runs like a well-oiled machine but the truth is, if I sit down for a moment, explosions happen.  My two-year old cannot be trusted by himself, but I cannot watch him every second of the day.  As a result, I get frequent notifications from my 6-year old that sound something like this: "Mom, Noah is putting coupons in the fish tank."  You can replace the word 'coupons' and the word 'fish tank' with another object/location, and I've probably heard it.

I have to believe that none of you are domestic goddesses, either.  While I'm waiting for confirmation of that, I have to go remove some coupons from the fish tank.

    Awesome Blog!! ~~~~ Awesome Possum!!

    I can't believe no one has commented on this post!!

    I think they might still be in self denial... ;p

    I actually once felt defective that I was less than a mash up of Betty Crocker, Martha Stewart, Maria Montessori, and the CEO of a fortune 500 company. I got over it when I was informed by my kids and Hubbs that they thought I was better, WWAAAAAAAAYY better, than those women, anyway! Well, for the most part. Until they became teenagers. X-D
    You have inspired me, after reading MANY of your blogging posts to start one so I can link up with you, get buttons, cyber friends and figure out the whole blogosphere.Then we can be ladies of the links together, haha!!
    Thanks again for your blog, which I was lead to via a follower of mine on Pinterest through a follower of her...
    Best Wishes!
    Christine D and no, not Duchess LOL =P


I love all the comments I get from you! Because of an insane amount of spam, I had to turn off anonymous commenting but I'd love it if you'd comment anyway!
